New Projects for BMW
Conveyor technology for BMW Dingolfing (Germany)
In February 2018, AFT received an order from BMW over the preparation of the conveyor technology at the Dingolfing plant for a new type variety. This involves the reorganisation of the existing electrical monorail routes in order to master the newly planned flows of material. The conversion takes place in many individual conversion modules (weekends, over holidays), since the production-free times are to be reduced. A careful scheduling represents the special challenge here.
Seat conveyor system for BMW Regensburg (Germany)
In July 2018, AFT received the order for the construction of a completely new seat conveyor system at BMW Regensburg. The system consists of a truck loading deck to which the seat pallets are delivered, a subsequent storage zone with floor conveyors and a larger electrical monorail transport route to the installation site on the final assembly line. The particular challenge here is that new seat hangers need to be developed, which must be compatible with fully automatic unloading by robots. On the drive side, MOVI C technology from SEW is used here for the first time.
